Tomorrow marks 100 days that I have committed to making art. Every single, stinkin' day. Now, the challenge was to just be creative everyday. But me...gotta make it a little tougher...create an additional challenge. I chose to make a piece of art every day. And honestly, some days I made several pieces, or worked on some things that took a few days. But I did it, I was creative every day. I made art every day.
So one thing that I did tonight was to sit down and create an on-line event for my friends on Facebook. The idea is that in lieu of a physical gathering to celebrate this 100th day of art making...
...side note, I do feel like I want to celebrate it, it's a big deal for me artistically and personally...
...anyway, getting everyone together, not an option. So I created the event, it's a 24-hour time period for folks to raise a glass (of whatever, could be a coffee or juice, that's cool) and celebrate with me...and take a picture to document it. I am hoping to gather the pictures together and combine them with the art/art-making pics from these 100 days into some kind of slideshow or something. Not sure what yet.
I will figure that out tomorrow.
It was weird finishing my CED #99 so early. I mean, I had it ready to go at 12am this morning. So I planned some of the pieces for this week and did some prep work, looked for inspiration for the Star Wars paintings I am going to create for the show at the Green Room...and tonight I sat down and started my teeny tiny work for the 'Self-Portrait Project'. (below)
This is a project through the Art House Co-Op. I did their 'Sketchbook Project' in 2009 (I think that was the date) and it was pretty cool, my sketchbook went on the gallery tour with all the other works. I got a chance to see it in a gallery in Chicago, and John and I even turned it into a chance to visit his cousin and her husband.
So...anyway...just some randomness that is going through my mind. Getting observed tomorrow, so I better get some sleep!
